What is it? GlobeIn Artisan Gift BoxHow Much? $35/month, $99/3months, $180/6months + $7 shipping per box (US$) What’s in it? A themed collection of artisan-made products from around the world
Each month, GlobeIn delivers “the globe in a box” - a themed collection of artisan-made products from around the world. GlobeIn introduces you to products that you can feel good about - they are often organic, fair-trade, and support artisans and farmers from around the world.
I last reviewed the GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box in November 2014. Since then, GlobeIn completely changed the subscription service. Instead of a box of items by a certain artist or from a certain region, GlobeIn now puts together a monthly box of handmade items, curated around a central theme. They also eliminated the different box options (formerly Global Home, Statement Jewellery, Awesome & Expected), in favour of a single themed box each month. So far the themes have been Refresh, Tribal, and Kitchen. The new subscription model comes with a slightly higher price, but Canadians will be happy to know the shipping cost was reduced!
One of the great things about the new GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box is that they release the theme and some spoilers prior to shipping. The theme for the March box is Sustain.
Over the last few weeks GlobeIn has released quite a few spoilers via e-mail. I've compiled them all together to help you decide if this box is for you.March brings a box of eco-friendly surprises -- goods and goodies that promise a better life for you, your family and the planet. We've curated a special collection of items that you're certain to use, reuse and enjoy.
In pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, cacao beans were the gold standard for all currency and trade. And for good reason. Besides their great taste, cacao is fragile, ecologically sensitive and grows best in only the purest conditions.
The Sustain Box promises a pure cacao sampling from the source. Our Columbian dark chocolate nibs are farmer-friendly and easy on the earth. They're just one small piece of eco-awesomeness!
Upcycled Coconut Bowl (Vietnam, $14)
These upcycled, food-safe bowls give fresh purpose to discarded coconut shells. Saving the shells from the burn pile saves greenhouse gas emissions while giving you a carbon-friendly way to enjoy your meal. (Assorted colors)
You can trace this Fair Trade tote all the way back to its seed. Organic “intercropping” techniques promote biodiversity and give growers food security in their own backyard.
This antioxidant-packed rice is grown in the volcanic soils of West Java, Indonesia. Conventional rice irrigation consumes 1/3 of the world's fresh water. The sustainably grown blend we've selected produces 3x the crop yield over conventional farming while consuming 1/2 as much water.
Eco Lips Relieve Soothing Lip Balm (Brazil, $5.99)
Help your lips feel revived and alive with this ultra-nourishing balm. The herbal mint infusion will awaken your senses while chia seed oil, sourced from South America, will hydrate and protect your lips from the elements.
And, as always, the GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box items come packed inside a reusable palm leaf basket from Mexico (value $12). The total retail value for this box is $45.43 US!
